Leitchfield City Council hesitated in passing its tax rate this year, tabling the issue from two weeks ago to give council members a chance to review the rate.
When a vote came Tuesday night, it was split, 2-2-2. Two people voted for the 4 percent increase in revenue. Two voted against it and two abstained from the vote altogether. The two abstaining from the vote were members of the budget committee which spent 16-18 hours in the spring to present a budget to the council. The presented budget included income from the projected increase.
